Innovative EU project to reduce youth unemployment

GCU is a partner in several EU funded projects

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is a partner in a new EU-funded programme aiming to contribute to the development of innovative approaches for the reduction of youth unemployment.

“Skills and Labour Markets to raise Youth Employment” (SALM) has been awarded under the European Commission’s Leonardo da Vinci Programme, part of the Lifelong Learning Programme.

This project will be led by the Universidade Catolica Portuguesa (Catholic University of Portugal), with partners in Spain, Malta, Germany, Romania and Italy.

The Leonardo da Vinci Programme funds practical projects in the field of vocational education and training, including ‘mobility’ initiatives enabling people to train in another country, co-operation projects to transfer or develop innovative practices, and networks focusing on topical themes in the sector.
